Our Location

3077 University Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90007

Our Skirball Campus boasts five academic schools: Rabbinic, Education, Nonprofit Management, and undergraduate Jewish Studies at the University of Southern California (USC). Each of these schools imbues the others with unique perspectives and expertise. Students routinely pursue joint degrees among the HUC-JIR Schools, take advantage of teaching opportunities at USC, to study in our four Nonprofit Management dual degrees with USC’s schools of Social Work, Public Policy, Business, and Communications.

Message from the Dean

In LA, HUC-JIR belongs to a vast ecosystem of creativity and activity. With four academic schools and numerous programs crisscrossing each other and the University of Southern California, our educational horizons are limitless. Longtime Ashkenazi and Sephardi communities meet a burgeoning Persian and Israeli scene, with food, synagogues, and cultural centers to match. And the culture only begins there, with theater, cinema, and museums everywhere, plus a climate and scenery to get you out all year.
